El Shaarawy proud to be AC Milan matchwinner

AC Milan attacker Stephan El Shaarawy was delighted to prove their matchwinner in victory over Genoa.

The youngster turned 20 today and celebrated by netting the only goal in a 1-0 victory over Genoa.

"I am moved, as it's the best birthday of my life," he told Sky Sport Italia.

El Shaarawy refused to celebrate as a sign of respect for his former fans.

"I am excited and happy, both for the victory and the goal. Is this my Milan? I'm happy people are saying that. I just try to give my all and put myself at the disposal of the Coach."
